Degrees & Certificates
The Las Positas College Mathematics program offers courses that lead to an Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree. The major requirements for the Associate in Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree align with the Intersegmental Transfer Model Curriculum (TMC) for Mathematics. Students will have guaranteed admission to a California State University (CSU) campus upon successful completion of the program requirements. Students should consult with a counselor to determine whether this degree is the best option for their transfer goals. General education requirements should be selected carefully based on the intended transfer institution.
- Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units that are eligible for transfer
to the California State University, including both of the following:
- The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or CA State University General Education - Breadth Requirements.
- A minimum of 18 semester units or 27 quarter units in a major or area of emphasis, as determined by the community college district.
- Obtainment of a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT’s) also require that students must earn a "C " (or "P'') or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis.
The Associate of Science in Mathematics for Transfer degree is intended to provide an option for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus, or pursue a teaching career, since teachers of mathematics are always in demand. They study of mathematics can prepare students for a variety of technical and scientific careers. Th e problem-solving and communication skills acquired are valuable in business, industry, and everyday life, and mathematics is an essential component of any engineering or science degree.

See the Las Positas College California State University General Education-Breadth or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (for CSU) patterns for a listing of areas and courses. Double counting courses in GE and the major is permissible. The number of units that may be double counted will depend on the entry point to the degree program and the optional course(s) taken. Elective units are CSU transferable. Consult with an adviser or a counselor to plan the courses necessary to achieve your academic goal.
